The best IRC client that I've used is irssi.

Some common abbreviations used on IRC :

u = you
ic = I see
brb = be right back
bbl = be back later
aka = also known as
imho = in my humble opinion
faq = frequently asked questions
svp = s'il vous plaît (the only french abbreviation that I know!)
tyt = take your time
b4 = before

Arabic letters written on IRC : sometimes when people on IRC like to talk in arabic, they use the english alphabet to write in arabic, for example :

ana = me , inta = you , and so on... and sometimes some english numbers are used to type certain arabic letters, because it looks like them :
7 = h, like in : A7mad = Ahmad
7. = kh, like in : 7.aled = Khaled
2 = "al-hamza", like : e2fil = e'fil
3 = "ein", like : az3ar = azaar
